Gerry Daly visits the National Botanic Gardens to take a look at the variety of plants on display.

The National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin Dublin were originally set up for the study of plants of economic importance. Over the years the remit of the Botanic Gardens has grown to include an educational function for gardeners, horticulturalists and for the public to enjoy.

The plants have been arranged to give a visually pleasing effect. Gerry Daly describes the different varieties on display, from golden to blue leaves, rhododendrons, willows and mountain ash.

'Room Outside' was broadcast on 20 June 1985. The presenter is Gerry Daly.
